HELP! Have you seen my brain?

HELP!!!  Do you see this purple-knobbed little tool?   
It is meant to poke into the needle applicator of a large bottle of Roxanne's Glue Baste to clean out the needle to thus allow the glue to flow freely.  It is an awesome tool...

...why do I need help?  I can't remember where I bought it and EVERYONE that sees this little gem WANTS one!!  I have searched the Internet trying to find one and "jog" my memory about this.  I thought it came with my last purchase of a large bottle, but I can't find that it comes with the product now.  (Lord, I miss my mind!)

I'm a tool girl, and sometimes a great time-saving tip is all about the tool.  I'm working on a tutorial post on the applique method I use and want to mention this product.  Please let me know if you can help me out with this mystery!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)


  1. Sorry I just put a pin in mine.


  2. I found it, it is called "Lil' Sticks" sold by fasturn.

  3. P3 Designs has them
    I use this too - I think we might applique the same way.

  4. I love Christine's comment about sticking a pin in it. Does she mean the glue bottle or her brain!? (Speaking as one that either a) should answer the question about "where is my brain" herself, or b) should probably stick a pin in it! LOL)
    Don't have a clue about the tool (looks like that's been covered), but I'm loving the birds and SUPER LOVE loving that background fabric!
    If you should see my brain when you find yours, you'll let me know, right!?!?!?!

  5. Roxanne glue gunks up on me all the time - I haven't seen one of those little purple tool- maybe one day I will have success!

  6. That's a new one on me. I've never seen one before. They probably make it purple so it doesn't get lost among all of our other tools. Come to think of it, I haven't seen my bottle of Roxanne glue in awhile either. Hmmmmm Will be waiting to see your applique' method.

  7. It's probably hanging out with mine (brain that is) 'cos mine's missing too, if you find it send it home will you..??
    Oh yes, that would be a great little gadget, when you find that can you let me know where to get it..

  8. oh my i love your birds and that background fabric is so pretty
    whose is it????
    I can't help you with the glue stick but looks like others did!!! guess I need one of those too, right????
    oh wait I don't use glue!

  9. I see someone found a source for them :0) I use those LONGGGGG quilting pins that all quilters buy when they first start quilting and then find that they are useless LOL.


  10. not a glue girl myself, but I love the little birdie!

  11. The little purple thing looks like a useful tool. I always have a problem with Roxanne's Glue and the applicator stopping up.
    Love those red birds.

  12. That purple thing looks quiet useful, however, I just recently started using Roxanne's glue and when I"m done with it, I just rinse the applicator needle with lukewarm water and blow the excess out. Works just fine!
    Your applique work is just lovely!

  13. I haven't used this glue, so I can't help you out. Just wanted to say how beautiful your applique is. I'll look forward to your tutorial!

  14. here you go

  15. I just love your red birds! Are you going to show us what you're making with them?? :0)

  16. I just saw those purple tools at the Sewing Quilting Expo in Kansas City. Had no idea what they were for.... they were at the Fasturn booth, but I don't see them on their website. I did a websearch for "Lil'Sticks" and found this page:


Thanks for stopping by the quilt cave...I love your feedback! I am sorry that I am no longer able to accept comments from "Anonymous" leaves the door open for too many spammers!
